The Wilson Beacon

Madelyn Shapiro
Madelyn is a senior in her fourth year of writing for The Beacon. She is now a Magazine Editor in addition to running track and being a Friends addict. Mortal fear of muffins, the real ones know why. This Mariokart fiend lives off of dried mango and strawberry fruit leathers. Loves biomed and mini goldendoodles <3.
